I've been following some amazing creative blogs and video tutorials of late of some very talented ladies, one in particular is a fellow Scrap Africa DT member and one of my favourite "arty" people, Marta Lapkowska - http://artistycrafty.blogspot.com.au/ (thanks for the tips and inspo Marta!) If you get a chance have a browse through her very inspirational blog. So here is my very first attempt at just mixed media, art journalling - no photos....eeek!
